Copyright law is a highly neglected field in Pakistan. People, as a routine, get their trademark registered as a copyrightable work, which registration most of the time does not serve any useful purpose.
Except for this erroneous use, invocation of copyright law is a rarity in Pakistan as people do not understand the strength of protection provided by copyright registration. In addition to providing clients with counseling regarding the propriety or otherwise of copyright registration, firm’s copyright practice covers almost all aspects of copyright law.
Meer & Hasan offers a full range of services relating to the protection of copyrights and advises its clients regarding the registration, licensing, policing and enforcement of their copyright rights.
As mentioned above, there are also trademark issues that can arise in copyright contexts. Although a work might not constitute a copyright infringement, it might be a trademark violation and vice versa. Since most of our IP lawyers are proficient in trademark law as well, therefore we are always able to give useful insight to our clients.
We are also skilled in negotiating and drafting publishing agreements and agreements for the sale or licensing of copyrighted materials. Our attorneys also assist the firm’s clients in the enforcement of copyright rights and against claims of infringement brought by others.
